In October 2008 we sent a newsletter advancing some of the exciting events coming in the the last quarter of the year...It was great to team up with the Hispanic Festival and to contribute to Barnardo's Charity Auction.
It sounded like this...
Reserve some of your energy for the aftermaths of tonight’s full moon as you will need it for the events kicking off this Thursday 16th October.
If you missed our last preview with new works by Jacqui Higgs and amazing Edinburgh scenes made in collage by Zoe Mafham, join us this Thursday from 5.30pm till 6.30 pm.

We have 1 new work by Zoe plus 3 new colourful musicians by best seller Nikki Godley to brighten up the evening.

This Thursday 16th also marks the comeback of the Hispanic Festival, celebrating Scottish and Hispanic connections in Edinburgh, with 4 days full of cultural events.
Whether it has been inspired by Spain and painted in Scotland or inspired by Scotland and painted in Spain; some of the works we sell symbolize this Hispanic-Scottish link.
We would like to celebrate it by giving the Hispanic Festival visitors a 10% discount voucher for any of the paintings exhibited at Joseph Pearce's Bar, Elm Row, until the 9th of November, including works by Mexican and Spanish illustrators Eduardo Rubio & Max Hierro, respectively, which are exclusive to Delicartessen

Finally we have united forces with Joseph Pearce’s Bar to organise Barnardo’s annual art auction and plan to raise £4000 to give Edinburgh RAFTs kids the opportunity of enjoying a summer camp. I’d like to thank in advance to “our artists” who have generously donated 4 paintings for the auction so far.The works will be up on show from 10th November and the auction will be on the 10th of December, but I’ll keep you informed!!
Waiting the Adoption, by Zohre Mirabassi
